Groot

I'm sure people must be aware of groot already. It's not for newbies, but can be quite useful to have installed if you play with other Distros (as I do). I use the Manjaro/Arch equivalent when a multiple install messes up the Grub/Manjaro boot sequence (Manjaro needs to control Grub... although there are workarounds).

Anyway, thought it might be useful to have it in the repos, although it's easy enough to install manually.

Does it say, "I am Groot!"?

And all its status and error messages are just "I am Groot!", but somehow certain users can make out what they mean.

The source code ships with a debian folder, which usually makes it trivial to package if the files in it are kosher.

There was some cruft in the supplied debian/rules file, but it built fine after I removed that. Here's the debs before they get to the test repo: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bUkYi ... J9HEmbCml5
